ABU DHABI – Daniel Cormier embarks on a new challenge in his broadcasting career Saturday at UFC 254. Cormier, a former two-division UFC champion, has transitioned full-time into a commentary and analyst role since his retirement from competition in August . He’ll be in the booth for the biggest fights going forward, including the Saturday’s lightweight title unification bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje. Nurmagomedov (28-0 MMA, 12-0 UFC) is a friend and teammate of Cormier at American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, Calif., and that relationship draws questions about whether Cormier can be unbiased on fight night. Cormier said past experiences lead him to believe he’ll be able to do the job competently for the matchup with Gaethje (22-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC), but he hasn’t encountered a situation of this magnitude
